Review for Children of the Americas (COTA), Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The triple care approach of COTA is one of the non-profit's most remarkable qualities. The organization has a mission to treat women and children on site in Guatemala, provide ambulatory devices as needed, and then goes above and beyond by selecting a few of the most vulnerable children to travel to the United States for lifesaving surgeries. All of this is accomplished by volunteers spread out across the United States who have other full time jobs. I can't think of a more rewarding group to be a part of. Children of the Americas is walking the walk to make life better for families in underdeveloped nations.

Review for Children of the Americas (COTA), Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

One strength of the COTA mission is in the size and diversity of people that come together to volunteer. For one week, once a year, over 100 individuals come from across the US with skill sets ranging from world class surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists, to interpreters, logistics personnel, cooks and van drivers. After being a part of the group for two years now, COTA feels more like a family helping other families. They are truly interested in a greater good and are quite efficient at reaching hundreds of women and children in that one short week.
